The problem is if the code doesn't carry a license it's
assumed the code is proprietary and we cannot take it.
I need a license from here:
http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-a

I personally prefer a BSD license for my work because
I can't make any claims about patents but If the code
you used as a template is from OOo, then we
(actually you and only you) can add AL2 header on it.

See the Appendix here:
http://apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0

Sorry that contributing is such a mess, but you learn
this stuff once and it works everywhere ;).

There were some minor updates that were not included in
an old 4.12. I guess you will be making a new one so feel
free to send me a private message with a packaged version
or submit it as an issue in the google code place.

cheers,
